SAVE works to protect critical habitat throughout the spoonbill's range and proposing alternative plans to support local sustainable economies.
Save International‘s mission is to protect the critically endangered Black-faced Spoonbill (Platalea minor) and its habitat throughout its flyway by promoting alternative economic development and long-term sustainability of the ecosystems and local communities.
SAVE International has been working locally with groups in Taiwan, Korea, and Japan to protect the habitat of the endangered black-faced spoonbill.
In SAVE’s early years, our work was primarily focussed on protecting the most important wintering habitat — the Tseng-wen Estuary in Taiwan — from industrial development proposals, but we have extended our efforts. SAVE is now also working actively in Korea to save important breeding (summer) habitat and in Japan, China, and other parts of Taiwan to save additional wintering and migration-stopover habitat.
